It's still winter, but now is the time to start the first seeds. I am keen to have some biggish seedlings when it is finally time to start planting. Chillis, capsicums and eggplants seem to need longer to grow to a decent size. What to do?
Make your own propagation box!
Take some styrofoam boxes.
Add heat mats (in this case they are actually reptile mats).
Put your trays on that. (The seedling punnets will go in there.)
Cover with an old window.
Get yourself a thermometer with a probe, so that you can measure the temperature of the tray.
Start sowing! :)
